Fatal crash on startup

Earlier I was testing out some maps by loading up a new game, and the game crashed with a population error. I didn’t think much of it at the time since the experimental can bug out occasionally, however now whenever I try and boot up the game I immediately get this crash error. I don’t even get to the title screen.

replacing the game’s files from the original zip seems to have fixed it

update: seems the game just doesn’t play nice with prisoner on island escape for some reason. guard works fine.
otherwise it always crashes

The forum generally doesn’t resolve crashes. That’s why, I assume, Korg linked you to Github.

ah okay. I was more posting it here in case anybody knew why this was.
